Bank Scam Update

The suspects involved in some local bank scams may be going online with their information. A Putnam County woman told the sheriff's department this week that someone used her bank account to make a purchase from the Abercrombie.com web site. She says when she called Abercrombie about it, she found out that the bank had already cancelled the transaction. And she was told that they could track the person using the card, but that she would have to get a police report first. Meanwhile, Cookeville police are still hoping that ATM surveillance photos will give them some leads into who may be involved in stealing debit card information.
